Project AWARE

When should I service my dive gear?

One of the questions we get asked here at Splash Water Sports is “How often should I get my regulator serviced?” Manufactures such as Aqualung recommends service at annually (most require service to keep the warranty valid). If you find you dive a lot, you may want to get your gear checked twice a year.

When the trained service technicians at Splash Water Sports do a full service, your Reg gets completely stripped down and taken apart. Each component is inspected for corrosion and cleaned, O-rings and filters get replaced. Hoses will be inspected and cleaned. As the Reg is re-assembled, some fine-tuning will be done to make sure that the regulator breathes easily without free flowing. The records will also be updated with who performed the service, when it was done and what service was performed.

Maybe it’s better to think of it less as a “servicing” and more like a “tune-up”. A happy regulator means that you will have years of good trouble free diving a head of you.
